Scott Kay is a software engineer at eMoney Advisor. He has been experimenting with Go over the past year and introducing the language at local developer events. Prior to joining eMoney, Scott developed automation and control software for chemical analyzers and DNA scanners at Agilent Technologies.
Let’s take a look at, and discuss, a real-world Go application. Scott will walk us through code to generate a daily digest email pulling in data from FogBugz, Mercurial, and JSON services. He’ll highlight the use of serialization, templating, email generation, and Windows authentication libraries.
